Hey...

I recently put together my own computer, and the first time i did it, the motherboard/cpu combo crapped out.

http://www.compwarehouse.com/product35.html

 I sent the combo back, got a new one, and it worked fine for a day or so, then the exact same thing began to happen as had happened before. Performance began to degrade. First i couldnt watch any compressed AVI files without hiccups, then wmv files, then RM files. Then, the screen locked up, and when i rebooted my computer, i got no video, and im not even hearing any whirr of startup.

The video thing was just how i related the degradation of performance, because that was the easiest way to see how my computer was breaking down.

Has anyone had any experience with any of these parts, or has any links to articles telling me that this is a crap motherboard, or there is some reason that this is the second motherboard in a row that has broken down in the same way as before, or if i'm just doing something wrong. I have done stuff like this before, so i know what im doing, and as far as i can tell, from my side, i'm doing nothing wrong besides not throing this hunk of junk out the window.

Thanks for the help,
Xen
